Yes that is exactly what I am wanting to know. It is definitely making power up to redline and I need to know if it will stay together if pushed harder.

Thanks in advance for you input.

Do not take a single-port past 5k rpm's. It will do you no good. You really need ported heads and intakes like Tom Jr to make real power.....

Maybe I should have stated some of the other modifications. There has been head and intake porting, 19 lb injectors, 56 MM throttle body and 3.5" cold air induction, as well as true dual exhaust and H-pipe. Dyno tune coming this Friday and 3.73 gears next month.

So I really just need to know what RPM the bottom end will safely handle.
